Belkar serves up a delicious vulture stew and they almost get away with O-Chul and Roy's body.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Belkar cooks over a fire being fed by a demon-roach's fiery breath.
Belkar: And just a pinch of Mama Bitterleaf’s Secret +2 Circumstance Bonus Ingredient.
Demon Roach: Hey, Buzzcut! Can I stop with the fire yet?

Panel 2

Belkar: There are two jobs available for you: Providing the fire, or providing the side dish.
Demon Roach: Do you need hotter? Because I can do hotter.

Panel 3

Haley: Hey, Belkar, can we speed this up? We need to meet Elan.
Belkar: I’ve been cooking for ten minutes! I’m no Iron Chef!
Demon Roach: Frankly, you’re no Rachel Ray, either.

Panel 4

Haley takes the pot of stew.
Belkar: Hey!
Haley: Well, the thing under the umbrella is starting to talk about how he’d like to be the thimble this time, so I think this plan is now-or-never.

Panel 5

Haley: Here you go, one piping hot pot of fresh vulture stew. 
Monster in the Darkness: Oooooo! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

Panel 6

The monster drinks the stew out of the pot, "GLUG GLUG GLUG GLUG GLUG GLUG GLUG"
Monster in the Darkness: Mmmmm! Stewy!
Demon Roach: He likes it! Mikey likes it!

Panel 7

Belkar: Well, looks like I’m a sexy shoeless god of cooking, too. Demon-Roach: *slurp*
Haley: Great, then we’ll take our friends and leave.
Monster in the Darkness: Awwww, I guess. I’m really going to miss them, you know.

Panel 8

MitD: Goodbye, Flopsy! Goodbye, Mr. Stiffly! I’ll write to you every day.
Haley: I’ll drag Roy, you get O-Chul.
Belkar: Can’t we just stuff the paladin in the Bag of Holding.
Haley: No, he’d suffocate in there.

Panel 9

Haley: Hey there, Roy. Don’t you worry, we’re one step closer to you taking back your job here.
Demon Roach: I dunno, I think he can use the time off.

Panel 10

Belkar: Awww, what’s the matter, Haley? Your stint as the leader of the Order of the Stick not living up to your expectations?
Haley: No, it’s not that. It’s just that—
Monster in the Darkness: Wait a second.

Panel 11

Monster in the Darkness: You guys are the Order of the Stick?
Haley: You’ve heard of us?
Monster in the Darkness: Yeah…

Panel 12

Monster in the Darkness: I think I’m supposed to devour you.
Monster in the Darkness: …
Monster in the Darkness: Small campaign world, huh?

D&D Context Edit

  • Circumstance Modifiers depend on the conditions of the attempted skill. A +2 would cancel out Belkar's use of improvised tools for the meal.
  • The campaign world is the setting in which a game of D&D is played.

Trivia Edit

  • In the third panel Belkar and the demon-roach reference the Iron Chef and Rachael Ray cooking shows. The Iron Chef show is timed: the chefs must complete their meals within one hour. Rachael Ray is not considered to be of the caliber of the Iron Chefs; her show is more about home cooking.
  • The thimble in the fourth panel Haley refers to is the Monopoly playing piece. MitD expressed an interest in playing a game in the last strip.
  • The roach in the sixth panel refers to Little Mikey a character in an ad campaign for Life cereal beginning in 1972. The campaign continued for 12 years, making it one of the longest running TV ad campaigns.
  • This is the second time Belkar has used the term "sexy shoeless god of [insert activity here]."
  • This is the final appearance of Mr. Dragon, the tea party pet who first appears in #463.
